The boys were all avidly listening to the speaker. They were at a campout and it was time for ghost stories. Rudy volunteered to go first.
It was dark beyond the campfire. The boys were teasing Rudy for believing in ghosts.
“Shssh,” he said, “this is real.”
The boys all laughed, but finally settled down.
Rudy began speaking, “the Vegas family was known around the area as criminals. All of them. Most of the residents believed them, but one family, Mr. and Mrs. Stein scoffed at the stories. One day they disappeared in their old car. They were never found.”
The boys started laughing again and teasing Rudy. The leader was trying to settle them all down when right near them in the woods, lights turned on and a motor started to run.
The leader was laughing until the car started out of the woods and headed right towards him. He ran after the boys
Rudy’s older brother Randy roared with laughter, then abandoned the old rusty car.
